Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..40.

EXAMPLE

4 = 8-4 = 125-121, 168 = 529-361 = 1849-1681, 312 = 841-529 = 1681-1369.

It is interesting that 529 is a member of the last two examples.

6888 is the first one to be represented in just three ways.

4920 is the first one to be represented in four ways.

MATHEMATICA

pp = Sort[ Flatten[ Table[ Prime[n]^Prime[i], {n, 1, PrimePi[ Sqrt[10^16]]}, {i, 1, PrimePi[ Floor[ Log[ Prime[n], 10^16]]]}]]]; l = Length[pp]; b = Sort[ Take[pp, -l + 1] - Take[pp, l - 1]]; Union[ b[[ Select[ Range[355], b[[ # ]] == b[[ # + 1]] &]]]]
